I LOVE talking about blocks, studying blocks, and playing with them in Photoshop... I am always on a quest for great blocks and trying to figure out what makes them so great ... So I started this companion blog that will be devoted to this quest. But also check out my regular blog at http://olderrose.blogspot.com

Big thanks to Kathy Shaw and Rengin's blog

First I have been meaning to do this forever and sorry that I have put it off for so long....  A huge thank you to Kathy Shaw for starting the CQJP and to all the people who have been supporting her.  This project appeals to all levels of CQ and for someone like myself who is on a quest for great blocks, it's a goldmine of diversity and talent...  If you haven't joined in this year, I hope you are following the blog....  And I hope even more people join in next year...

Also I was remiss the other day in not giving you a link to Rengin's blog  and she has a wonderful etsy site where she sells oyas....true Turkish delights for CQers..... Check it out..

Also Diane gave me her second choice...for the moment at least... It's a big decision if it is going to be a wall hanging and you have to look at it every day.. This is a very dark brown..

I have several things for Block Talk that I'm eager to get posted... Keep watching.


  1. Hmmm. In the other post I didn't like any of the darker colours because they seems to just draw my eyes to the dark colour and I lost the fans. But this colour works for me. It makes the lights fade into the background and my eyes see mostly the fans. But I think I'm still partial to the lighter backgrounds.

  2. Kathy has done a really excellent job with CQJP this year. This is my first year participating and I am looking forward to next year. I look forward to seeing the variety of blocks posted daily. I like Diane's 2nd, wonder what will be her first.
